The Impact of Driver’s Mental Models of Advanced Vehicle Technologies on Safety and Performance

Previous research by the Foundation has helped identify gaps in users’ knowledge and understanding of currently available advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS). More complex automated systems stand to further increase these gaps. This project will address the how errors in drivers’ understanding of automated systems impact their in-vehicle behaviors, safety, and performance.
